Why Bicycles for Education
Cycling has become such a huge movement in our world. From sports to commuting, with or without E, it's changing us and our cities.
That is amazing, but it is almost nothing compared to the change a bike can make for a girl in a developed country. Enabling her to get to school, help her family with transport, get a job, make a living. A bike can change the trajectory of her life from dependence to freedom.
Here, what Susan B Anthony wrote in 1896 still holds true:
I rejoice every time I see a woman ride by on a bike. It gives her a feeling of self-reliance and independence the moment she takes her seat; and away she goes, the picture of untrammeled womanhood.
A Buffalo Bicycle costs 134 €.
Help me raise 10 bikes, 1340 €. I will promise to ride 1km for each € donated up to that. Also: I need to, because, I have not been in the saddle a lot since starting our company 1 1/2 years ago.
